Since the interior brick offers more resistance than the exterior brick, one can

assume that the mean temperature in the air gap is less than the mean

3.25 m3/kg = 0.001017 m3/kg (1-x) + x (7.649m3/kg)

x = 0.42

(3) Since it is given tht it is saturated vapor, look at the steam table for the

saturation temperature at a saturation pressure of 175 kPa.

T = 116.06°C

vg = 1.0036 m3/kg

133.55°C. The given temperature of 300°C is greater than the saturation

temperature at the given pressure. Therefore, it is superheated steam.

151.86°C. The given temperature of 100°C is less than the saturation

SOLUTION:

(1) Since the phase is saturated vapor, find vg = 0.65571 ft3/lbm from R-22

table on CD. Read T and P.

T = 40°F

However, one has no information to determine the quality. All that can be

said is that:

vf ≤ v ≤ vg

1/(78.443 lbm/ft3) ≤ v ≤ 0.6258 ft3/lbm

0.01275 ft3/lbm ≤ v ≤ 0.6258 ft3/lbm

(5) At 10°F, vg = 1.1253 ft3/lbm and vf = 1/82.516 ft3/lbm = 0.0121 ft3/lbm. The

v falls between vg and vf, so it is saturated and p = 47.530 psia

v = vf(1-x) + xvg (eq. 3.11).

0.5 ft3/lbm = 0.0121 ft3/lbm (1-x) + x (1.1253 ft3/lbm)

x = 0.44

(7) Since it is known to be saturated liquid, T can be read from the R-22 table

at p = 83.246 psia.

GIVEN: Some buildings use night purge where cool night air is used to cool the

building mass in the evening to reduce cooling energy used the

following day. However, bringing in the cool night air can also cause

the building and its contents to absorb a lot of moisture that can

increase the latent load. The building return air is a constant 78ºF at

70% relative humidity without night purging and 76ºF at 77% relative

humidity with night purging.

SOLUTION:

h1 = 34.53 Btu/lbm

h2 = 34.51 Btu/lbm

No, it doesn’t make sense because the enthalpies of the two air streams are

almost exactly the same. Energy would be used by running the fans at night

and no appreciable cooling load gains would be obtained.

Therefore, Io varies 1418.3 W/m2 – 1327.7 W/m2 = 90.6 W/m2 in 182.5 days.

The average daily variation is 90.6 W/m2/182.5 days = 0.50 W/m2-day.

SOLUTION:

ω ss = cos −1 (− tan λ tan δ ) (eq. 6.7)

however the “sunset” on a tilted surface may occur before this, depending on

the tilt of the surface and the time of year:

The stack effect pressure different will vary from floor to floor, while the wind

effect pressure difference will vary for each side of the building (labeled A,

b. Window infiltration

It’s given that the window to wall ratio is 0.5. However, it is necessary to

make some assumptions about the window size to obtain lp. Assume that

the windows are full height and alternate with the curtain wall. Assuming

that each window is 5 ft wide x 13 ft high, lp = 36 ft for each window.

lp = 10 windows · 36 ft = 360 ft

Side B: lp = 5 windows · 36 ft = 180 ft

Side C: lp = 360 ft

Side D: lp = 180 ft

K = 1.0 for tight windows (from Figure 7.8)

∆p = ∆pst + ∆pwind

The negative value for ∆p signifies that this is exfiltration. When doing the

calculation for V w, one must use the absolute value of ∆p and ensure that

V w has the same sign as ∆p, so

V cw = Acw · K · ∆p0.65

Side B: Acw = 0.5 · 50 · 13 = 325 ft2

not change, because the resistance to heat transfer would remain the sum

of the resistances of all wall components. However, the peak conductive

cooling load could be increased if the concrete and the insulation were

switched. This would be due to the location of the smaller capacitance

being closer to the solar gain, allowing the indoor temperature to be more

susceptible to outdoor temperature fluctuations.

FIND: a) Latent and sensible heat gains and outdoor air requirements before

and during party.

b) How much the heating load changes relative to steady state conditions

c) Does the latent gain have any effect on the heating load if there is no

SOLUTION:

Sensible loads: 75 W/person (Table 7.5)

(These numbers assume that the heat output of the party-goers is similar

to people seated, doing light office work from Table 7.5)

Latent gain = 45 W/person x 2 persons = 90 W

Ventilation = 7.5 l/s-person x 2 person = 15 l/s

Latent gain = 45 W/person x 32 persons = 1440 W

Sensible gain = 75 W/person x 32 persons = 2400 W

results would be quite different. Assuming an HRV effectiveness

of 70% (i.e. 70% of the energy in the outgoing exhaust air is

GIVEN: The following three conductive heat load profiles were calculated for

south facing walls in Denver in July.

FIND: Which wall is which and justify your answer without doing any

calculations.

SOLUTION:

Wall A is the 4” of concrete. This is because Wall A has the shortest time

constant for conduction, meaning a quicker response to outdoor temperature

changes due to solar gain. The wall with the most thermal mass (12”

concrete) is wall C because it has the longest time constant, and is slow to

respond conductive heat. Wall B is the 8” of concrete, because it has a

response between wall A and C.

GIVEN: The house of Ex.7.5 (Fig. 7.7) has a forced air heating system with

some air ducts placed directly along the outside walls. The total duct

surface is 20 m2, and the portion in contact with the outside wall is 4 m2;

the surface heat transfer coefficient inside the duct is 20 W/m2. The hot

air is distributed at 60ºC when the furnace is running; when the furnace

is off assume for simplicity that the duct is at Ti=20ºC. Thus on average

the temperature rise above Ti of the duct is proportional to the load.

FIND:

a) How much do these duct losses increase the peak heating load, in

absolute and in relative terms?

b) How much does the annual energy consumption for heating increase,

in absolute and in relative terms?

c) How would these answers change if the duct were insulated with 2.5

cm of glass wool?

d) What is the payback time of adding this glass wool insulation if the

house is heated with natural gas at $5 per GJ, the furnace efficiency

is 90%, and the glass wool costs $25?

SOLUTION:

a) It is not necessary to consider the 16 m2 of duct that does not contact the

exterior wall, since this heat is rejected to the heated space.

From Ex.7.5, Uwall = 0.40 W/(m2-K)

the protractor center cross to 0.7 on the SHR scale. This is the slope of the

cooling coil process. Locate 75ºF and 50% RH on the psychrometric chart.

Draw a line at the slope of the SHR line from 75ºF and 50% RH. If the line

intersects the 100% saturation line on the psychrometric chart, the process is

feasible. In this problem, the slope line intersects the 100% saturation line at

approximately 46ºF, so the process is feasible .

less than or equal to the load, the fan will operate during all of the bin hours

as is the case for the 95ºF temperature bin. However, if Q cool is greater than

the load, the fan will cycle on and off to provide the same cooling energy as

the load requires. In this case,

FIND: Length change of pipe if it expands freely. Design U-type expansion loop

so length change can be accommodated (fixed anchors located at the

ends of this pipe).

SOLUTION:

From Table on CD for properties of wrought steel and iron pipe, the flow area

of 3 in. schedule 40 steel pipe is 0.05134 ft2 rated at 70ºF. The volume of

water at 70ºF must be calculated to find the length of pipe.

At 100ºF, V = 70 gal = 9.36 ft3

9.36 – Vo = Vo(3α∆T)

Vo = 9.36 ft3 / [3(6.5x10-6/ºF)(100ºF – 70ºF) + 1] = 9.35 ft3 at 70ºF

Lo = Vo/A = 9.35 ft3/0.05134 ft2 = 182 ft at 70ºF

L = 0.154 ft = 1.85 inches

From pipe expansion nonograms on CD, pt. III, enter the right part of the

figure at ∆T = 100ºF; move up to the 3” pipe size then draw a horizontal line

to the left. When the line intersects the vertical 200-ft distance line, the

If the outside air enthalpy is less than the return air enthalpy, it will

take less energy to cool it than the return air. However, typically we

only have dry bulb temperature control and do not know the outdoor

air enthalpy. In dry climates you can set the economizer high

temperature return to minimum flow at the return air temperature and

expect that the outdoor enthalpy will be lower than the return air

enthalpy. In humid climates, the economizer high temperature would

be set a few degrees lower than the return air temperature.

FIND: The effect on the controlled variable as the temperature sensor is moved

farther away from the coil.

SOLUTION:

As the temperature sensor is moved farther away from the coil, the lag time of

the process increases. The sensor response will be delayed, and it will

appear as if the time constant of the system has increased. Consequently,

the controlled variable (Tsa) is more likely to experience overshoot or

undershoot in response to changes in the setpoint and airflow rate.

The system controller will most likely require an increased derivative gain.

value for a measured voltage. A temperature sensor produces a 0 to

10 VDC signal over the range of -20ºF to 120ºF. The signal is

converted into an 8-bit value, which means that the total voltage range

is divided into 28 = 256 discrete values.

FIND: The minimum temperature change that can be recorded using this

temperature sensor.

SOLUTION:

Since the temperature range is 140ºF, and the total range can be divided into

256 discrete values, the minimum temperature change that can be recorded

using this sensor is:

140 F

= 0.55 F

the relative humidity with a hand-held probe and find an inlet relative

humidity of 59% and an outlet relative humidity of 31%.

sense?

SOLUTION:

Since no water is being added or removed, the humidity ratio of the inlet air

and the outlet air should be equal. From the “Psychrometric Scratch Sheet”,

we see that they are not:

With a 0.0054 lbwater/lbdryair humidity ratio, at 75ºF, the exit humidity should

read, 29%. However, when considering the accuracy of hand-held humidity

probes (±2-5%), the readings of the sensor make sense.

GIVEN: Air economizer mode attempts to mix outside air and building return air

to minimize the amount of energy needed to condition the resulting

mixed air stream to match the desired supply air conditions. Suppose

the conditions are outside air at 90ºF and 40% relative humidity, the

return air is at 80ºF and 70% relative humidity, and the supply air

setpoint is 55ºF and 80% relative humidity.

FIND: Should the economizer control use mostly outside air or mostly building

return air?

SOLUTION:

The economizer control should use mostly outside air, because it has a

lower enthalpy than the return air.

proportional-only control. The inlet temperature is 40ºF, the setpoint is

55ºF, and the controller gain is 0.1.

SOLUTION:

The controller output is the product of the gain and the error,

u = Kp · e

The error is the difference between the setpoint and the measured value, in

this case the coil outlet temperature,

e = 55ºF – Tout

The coil outlet temperature is a function of the inlet air temperature, the

throttling range, and the controller output,

= 55°F – (40°F + Kp · e · 20°F)

Rearranging for e,

e = 15°F / (1 + 20 · Kp)

GIVEN: The hot water coil on an air-handling unit has 120ºF inlet water

temperature, 110ºF outlet water temperature, and a water flow rate of

30 GPM. 10,000 CFM of air enters this coil at 57ºF and leaves at 73ºF.

The temperature sensors are accurate to within ±1ºF.

ASSUMPTIONS: The flow rates of air and water are measured without error.

SOLUTION:

Air side:

Q = 1.1 ⋅ CFM ⋅ (Tout − Tin )

Q = 1.1 ⋅ 10,000 ⋅ (73 − 57)

Q = 176,000 Btu / hr

However, the rate of heat transfer could be much lower, when considering the

accuracy of the temperature measurements:

Q min = 1.1 ⋅ 10,000 ⋅ (72 − 58)

Q = 154,000 Btu / hr

min

Water side:

Q = 500 ⋅ GPM ⋅ (Tout − Tin )

Q = 500 ⋅ 30 ⋅ (120 − 110)

Q = 150,000 Btu / hr

However, the rate of heat transfer could be much higher, when considering

the accuracy of the temperature measurements:

Q max = 500 ⋅ 30 ⋅ (121 − 109)

Qmax = 180,000 Btu / hr

GIVEN: Airflow measurements are often made at several points across the face

of an airstream so that the average airflow rate can be determined. A

pitot tube is often used for these kinds of measurements. The dynamic

pressure measurements at five points are 0.23, 0.20, 0.18, 0.25, 0.20

(all in equivalent inches of water).

SOLUTION:

2∆p

v=

ρ

where ∆p is the dynamic pressure (difference between total and static) and ρ

is the air density. Since one in W.G. is 5.2 lbf/ft2, the first measurement gives

2 ⋅ 1.2 lb f / ft 2

v= = 32.1 ft/s

(0.075 lb m / ft 3 ) /[32.2 lb m ⋅ ft /(lb f ⋅ s 2 )]

Repeating this for the other measurements gives velocities of 29.9, 28.3,

33.4, and 29.9 ft/s. The average velocity is therefore 30.7 ft/s

Note that this is not the same as taking the average pressure difference and

then calculating the resulting velocity. You must first calculate the velocity at

each point because the square relationship between pressure and velocity.

incandescent bulb. A particular task requires 200 lumens. A 50 W

fluorescent light bulb has a life of 7500 hours and an efficacy of 70

lm/W while a 50 W incandescent bulb has a life of 1000 hours and an

efficacy of 15 lm/W. The compact fluorescent bulb costs $20, the

incandescent bulb costs $1, and electricity costs 8¢ per kWh.

FIND: If it makes sense over the long run to use the compact fluorescent.

SOLUTION:

Fluorescent: 50 W ⋅ 70 lm / W = 3500 lm

Incandescent: 50 W ⋅ 15 lm / W = 750 lm

Incandescent:

7500 hrs

0.050 kW ⋅ 7500 hrs ⋅ $0.08 / kWh + ⋅ $1 / bulb = $37.50

1000 hrs / bulb

Therefore, in this case, it does not make sense to used compact fluorescents

over the long run. However, in this case, the fluorescent bulb is providing

many more lumens than necessary. CFL’s would be cost effective if a lower

wattage fluorescent bulb could be used.

FIND: The glazing that will minimize the cooling load among the types listed in

Table 6.6.

SOLUTION:

The glazing that provides the most visible light with the least amount of

transmitted daylight is the best glazing to choose. The quantity, Ke (= τv /

SC) is proportional to the luminous efficacy of transmitted daylight.

Therefore, the best glazing will be the one with the highest Ke. This is

glazing #9 in Table 6.6, Low-ε double glazing, green.
